By: Ani DiFranco
Album: Not a Pretty Girl
This song discusses the challenging assumptions that women are weak and their worth is within their beauty.
I'm not a pretty girl
That is not what I do
I ain't no damsel in distress
And I don't need to be rescued
So put me down punk
Wouldn't you prefer a maiden fair?
Isn't there a kitten stuck up in a tree somewhere?
Key Words: Ani Difranco, Not a Pretty Girl, Gender and Gender Identity
